Sansom Saga Continues

June 16th, 2010 by flanews

The Ray Sansom saga continues, as the former house speaker was back in court today continuing his call for the charges against him to be dropped. Sansom faces charges stemming from a legislative plan to use his leadership position to help build an airplane hanger for a political contributor. Sansom says the money wasnt for a hanger; it was meant to build an emergency shelter to better prepare his district for a hurricane. We caught up with his Attorney Steve Dobson after todays hearing.

Reporter: You seemed to hammer that one point pretty hard, that it would have served as an education facility and it would have served as a management area?

Dobson: It was going to be exactly as the legislature had appropriated funds for.

The Judge in the Sansom case says hell have a decision about whether or not to drop the charges next month.
